    Amani Affairs is organized, hard working, and dedicated to the work they do.

    Amani Affairs is amazing to work with! Their dedication, hard work, and organization makes your special day perfect in every way imaginable. They help to make sure all of your wedding dreams come true especially the small details that make your day unique. They are so well connected in the locations that they work in that they can immediately help you find a vendor for anything you want at your wedding from Carolina blue tablecloths to popcorn as a late night snack. Amani Affairs made me feel relaxed and comfortable on my wedding day!

    Simply Amazing - the best of the best

    Amani affairs is simply the best. We utilized their services for month of and day of coordination, but Jihan made sure we knew she was with us from the beginning, checking in to make sure we were on task and not panicking. The team at Amani affairs is professional and on point, the ladies who coordinated our day did not come to play any games, and made sure everything flowed exactly the way we all intended for it to. Their extra personal touches on decorations and last minute put togethers made everything come together flawlessly. I am beyond blessed to have had these women be a part of our day and help keep me sane, they are worth their weight in gold and then some!

    Amani Affairs's reply:

    Hope, if we could copy/paste you so that all our wedding management clients were as organized as you we would. You used all the tools we provided and met every deadline - you made working with you easy peasy! Thank you again for trusting us with your special day!
